Adoption Q&A: Am I Being Selfish By Choosing Adoption?

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on August 23, 2013

Question: I just found out that I’m pregnant and there’s no way I’m ready to be a mom right now. After I told my friends I was thinking about making an adoption plan for my baby, they told me that I was being selfish. Is it selfish to consider adoption?”

-Maddy from Ohio

Answer: Maddy, adoption can be one of the most loving decisions you make for your child. It takes a great deal of love and maturity to know that raising a child can be difficult and that it often takes more than love to provide the environment that a child needs to thrive and be successful.
